Donald Trump has actually long made a sport of mocking Amazon founder and Washington Post paper owner Jeff Bezos, and Jeff Bezos is well conscious of this.

Microsoft just won a $10 billion so-called “war cloud” contract with Donald Trump’s administration for Pentagon cloud-based computing.

Amazon desired that $10 billion Pentagon contract.

Amazon, the business founded by Jeff Bezos, plans to dispute the contract procedure, claiming “unmistakable bias.”

Amazon filed a formal protest in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, which handles financial claims against the federal government, reports the Associated Press on Thursday:

Amazon’s competitive quote for the “war cloud” task drew criticism from President Donald Trump and its business competitors. The task, formally called the Joint Enterprise Defense Facilities, or JEDI, pitted leading tech titans Microsoft, Amazon, Oracle and IBM versus one another

In a declaration, Amazon stated that “various aspects” of the bidding procedure included “clear deficiencies, errors, and apparent bias.” It did not elaborate.

Amazon added that “it’s essential that these matters be taken a look at and corrected.”

Microsoft has actually not yet talked about the matter.
